Ch 8, Day 37
"I feel good." (James Brown). Yep, that's what today brings, after a day On Plan yesterday. I really earned it, though, after pushing myself through the day every single step of the way. I love it when I can flex my emotional and physical mus... Read more

Days 34 & 35
My friend Julia, said of my vacation...."it sounds like you are going to need a vacation from your vacation." Wasn't that the truth. And, doing nothing but sitting grand baby, really helped a lot. Eating all the leftover vacation sna... Read more
Ch 8, Day 33
Will have half a day to enjoy with our friends today without the kids. I look forward to just sitting and talking, as it has been such a busy few days helping with grand baby. I've walked so many miles with her I've lost count....probably some... Read more

Ch 8, Days 28, 29, 30
From busyness, I got behind in my blogging.
My day's structure went totally askew when I had to unexpectedly sit grand baby when my friend couldn't take her day due to illness. It was unfortunate as I had my day totally ... Read more

Ch 8, Day 24
As I type "Day 24" I think, goodness, I am almost at 25% of the way through Chapter 8. It seems to have come so quickly. Silly, me. It only feels "quick" because my streak has only been going on for the last 5 days now, LOL. Still, I feel li... Read more

I'm back into my regular routine today. Hoo-ha! It was great to waken, relax with my coffee, and get out and walk. Took MIL to the Farmers Mkt. She insisted I use half of her coupons for myself. I picked up beets, cantelope, tomatoes, leeks... Read more

Ch 8, Day 18
I posted this quote when my dear friend Julia lost her MIL. When I went to change it, I thought I would leave it, because it has deep meaning for every day life. I think of my own sadness for my friend who is battling cancer, and how dear and ... Read more
